A GOOD ROGERING Release Video For “A Victory Lost”

Austin based heavy rockers A GOOD ROGERING have released a video for their song “A Victory Lost”. The song is from their album Systematic Paralysis which was released last year.

The band comments “‘A Victory Lost’ is the final installment of a trilogy of videos from the first three tracks of our latest album Systematic Paralysis. The video embodies the dystopian theme of the album with imagery, characters, and backdrops that depict an unfolding reality that’s sinister and taboo. The sonic landscape of ‘A Victory Lost’ is full of odd-meter catchy riffs, syncopated drumming, and heavy-hitting choruses that illuminate a message of skepticism in an age of dogmatism.

Skating Polly Share Blistering New Track “Send A Priest” Today; New LP out June 23rd!

“It’s the toughest song on the record and lends itself to great mosh pits. It’s a ‘Who’s using who?’ type of song, all about inviting the Big Bad Wolf in and turning a blind eye to the consequences.

I rewrote them a dozen times but the final lyrics really stand out to me as vital and close to heart.” – Kelli Mayo on “Send A Priest”

Zolita Releases New Single “Grave” and Joins Bebe Rexha’s North American Tour

“‘Grave’ is about choosing to be the bigger person when someone you love really hurts you,” shares Zolita on the song. “When a toxic relationship I was in ended, I spent a lot of time looking for validation that the love we had was real at all. It was really cathartic to know I had the power to expose this person’s wrongdoings and make them hurt in the same way I did. But in the end I found more power in choosing to keep things to myself and not give this person any more of my energy. My friends and collaborators Katelyn Tarver and Davis Naish wrote and played this song for me and it resonated with me so instantly, I knew I had to record it.”

A physical movement is conveyed in the song imagery, but the same imagery applies to us writing the song. The introduction, those plodding first few steps to the ending chords, triumphant in their final moments and hanging in the air until at last fading out.”
